Firepad has demonstrated a technology that can stream video and audio to Palm OS. The company claims to have developed the first high-speed streaming technology for the Palm, which can support video at up to 25fps.
As with most streaming technologies, Firepad’s technology is split into three applications. FireViewer is the end-user’s browser, FirePublisher is the server and FireProducer is the authoring tool. Currently, the three apps allow large images to be distributed to Palm users, but with the release of version 5 of the apps video streaming will also be possible.
The content is sent out to wireless devices via standard TCP/IP protocols.
